Do you love retro arcade games? I certainly do. While the pixel art character sprites get a whole lot of love, the fonts used to display your score and life status deserve much more appreciation.

Typeface designer Toshi Omagari’s book catalogs dozens of the chunky pixelated fonts used in arcade games from the 1970s through the 1990s. The 272-page book is chockful of retro gaming goodness, and includes type specimens for each font, along with an example screenshot from one of the games it appeared in, including everything from Pac-Man to Shinobi to Marble Madness, along with many more obscure games.
